Planting Prep

A farmer prepares his field, northeast of El Campo along U.S. 59, Friday morning before planting season begins. Corn and grain sorghum producers are waiting to see if next week’s forecasted cold front will impact the 2021 planting season or if soil temperatures will be cold enough to begin planting their crops. Corn and grain sorghum are typically the first crops planted in the  Wharton County area, with seed going in the ground by mid to late February or early March.
